  • What's a ChaCha Guide?

    Answer by Anonymous at 3:30 PM on Apr. 5, 2011

  • I did it for a while. It's per question, and the highest you get per question is $0.20, and those are very, very rare. You have to work, as I calculated it once, 12 hours a day, 7 days a week with not even bathroom breaks, to make $800 a month. And that's only if the questions are coming fast. Most of the time they don't.

    Honestly, I found it to not really be worth it. I do it every now and then, it does give me a tiny bit of extra cash every now and then, but I don't count on it for anything. It's not reliable enough to really trust.

  • I was literally JUST looking into this. I don't think it's worth it.

  • I looked into it but to get paid only a few cents per question is not worth it to me. Why would I want to work all day for just a couple of dollars. I would rather just budget better :)

  • I'm sorry, I have to correct myself. I had HOPED to make $800 a month with it. When I did my calculations, those figures got $150 a month. I unintentionally made it sound better than it really is. Sorry about that.

  • There are many work at home jobs or businesses that actually save you money. There are 2 in particular that I do to save money on my monthly shopping and one saves me money on gas. I recommend check out both of these, and both are excellent for generating income too!

  • No I looked into it. Not worth it.
